Happy Birthday, Sister!

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.


My lovely and wonderful sister turns 28 today! Man, she’s getting old! πŸ˜‰ As cheesy as it sounds, my sister is the greatest sister anyone could ever ask for– she’s kind and caring, but also fun and goofy! Have an AWESOME day, Sister! πŸ˜€


I have today off from work! Wahoo! 😎

But, today’s not really a day off for me. I have a lot to do! I have physical therapy in 15 minutes (gotta hurry!) and then I am off to get a resident parking permit for our car. Southie is notorious for lack of parking andΒ especially non-resident parking, so a permit is much needed! And then I need to be back at our apartment by 11:00 because the cable/internet man is coming between 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. Don’t ya love how they give you that window? I gotta boogie!


I made my first batch of oats in our new apartment this morning!


I made banana oats with ground flaxseed meal and two huge scoops of Barney Butter. It was GREAT! I’ve missed my morning bowl of oats!


I’m blogging from Starbucks right now (yay, free WiFi), so I’ll probably grab a caffeinated beverage before I leave. I’m loving my new fall favorite: soy misto with a squirt of pumpkin syrup. It’s heaven in a cup for a fraction of calories and sugar!

Yoda Pug

My mom requested more pictures of Murphy on the blog, so here’s one of him after a bath the other day. He’s channeling his inner Yoda. πŸ˜‰


Question of the Day

What’s your favorite childhood movie?

With the Star Wars reference above, I thought this would be a fun QofD.

My favorite childhood movie is The Goonies. My sister and I practically know every line by heart! (I’ve actually never watched ANY of the Star Wars movies!)



  1. love the yoda pug!

    my sister and i watched the princess bride over and over again! oh and i can’t forget bout girls just wanna have fun!

  2. Not only are the three hour windows fabulous, but even better, they are all during the work day! Ugh.

    My favorite childhood movie that I watched over and over was Sleepless in Seattle. When Meg Ryan would peel the apple with her knife, I would ask my mom to do that for me, LOL.

    Foodie from a young age πŸ™‚

  3. 1) Happy birthday, Tina’s sister!! :mrgreen:
    2) Thanks for the yoga tip. I may do the lunch time sesh πŸ™‚
    3) Mal + baby pug is the cutest thing EVER! Seriously, I want to meet the little guy πŸ˜€

  4. I LOVED The Goonies, too! It was filmed right where I was born/raised/still live, which is pretty cool. I also was obsessed with The Mask! I knew every line!! I wanted to grow up and be Jim Carrey lol
